TRUNK OR TREAT

It's happening and we need you!

With so much uncertainty and separation, this event will be an opportunity for our congregation to gather and provide a safe and fun experience for our community. 

When:   October 31 (Saturday)

                    5pm-9pm (We will be wrapped up and gone by 9pm.)

Needs:   Approximately 25 families (cars) to decorate and handout candy – Need about 15 more cars.

               8 kitchen/food helpers

               2 greeters (hand out bags)

               2 parking lot attendants to assist members and others in parking until 5pm (We will then open the office side lot to anyone.)

To address safety/health concerns:

1.   All cars and spots will continue to be spaced out as usual to make sure our congregants are six feet apart

2.   All Central folks need to wear masks (feel free to incorporate that into your costumes!)

3.   If you are handing out candy, it needs to be PRE-WRAPPED.

4.   Whomever hands out the candy must wear gloves and not allow trick or treaters to grab candy on their own.

5.   We WILL still serve food, however only a select few cooking people will be allowed in the building.

6.   All food (as always) will be pre-wrapped and handed out by selected GLOVED/MASKED workers.

7.   Building will be closed to everyone except Central members – you can use the bathrooms near the glass doors of the gym.
